262 West End Avenue has a beauty salon on the second floor, but is otherwise primarily a residential building.
After an exterior renovation completed last year the extensive signage from the salon's corner windows was removed. Now the building seems to have permitted the salon to use the canopy located at the residential entrance on West End to serve as signage.
I *think* that this may constitute a violation of DOB regulations regarding the type of information allowed on these canopies. The only reason I think so is because of information I learned during my volunteer involvement 10 years ago with the Ronnie Eldridge/Landmark West improvement project for West 72nd Street from CPW to RSD.
